- Agusti Benedito, former presidential candidate at Barca, will try to launch a vote of no confidence.
- He tried to do the same two year ago but didn't get enough signatures to sack Bartomeu.
Agusti Benedito will try once again to sack Bartomeu and the current Barcelona board by launching a vote of no confidence against them. The former presidential candidate announced this on his personal Twitter account. His first step will be to collect the needed signatures before filing the document.
"They don't listen to us. They don't represent us," tweeted Benedito from his personal account today. The paper on the photo looks like a document validated by a notary in which it is stated what the number of applications (signature, name and member ID) will be necessary to activate a vote of no confidence. This will have to be submitted along with the signatures once they've collected them.
As a reminder, Benedito has already tried to launch a vote of no confidence back in 2017. However, his plan turned out unsuccessful as he came a few votes short of activating the vote.
Back then, he collected over 16,000 signatures but it wasn't enough. Now, Agusti and his supporters need only 12,504 signatures but they will have less time. Only fans having a club membership will be able to vote.
The team's poor results (like the embarrassing loss to Liverpool), the unwillingness of the president to sack Valverde despite him not improving the team and the poor long-term planning has made a lot of fans angry with him.
Do you think Bartomeu could be sacked this time?
